LG Optimus LTE II is rolling out in Korea this week, with global availability on the horizon
Of late, we’ve been hearing a lot regarding the LG Optimus LTE II, which as we all know, is most notable for the hefty 2GB of RAM it’s packing along for the ride. Although we’ve been officially introduced to the smartphone very recently, LG provided yet another introduction that details its specs. Oh yeah, it’s also shipping to the Korea this week!

This time around, however, we’re made aware about its screen size, which is none other than a 4.7” True HD (720 x 1280) IPS LCD display. No doubt bigger than the one used by its predecessor, the rest of the handset is actually very similar – as it sports a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU and 8-megapixel camera with LED flash. Additionally, it’s mentioned to offer Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, DLNA, and wireless charging.

On the software side, we’re already familiar with the LG Optimus UI 3.0, as it was announced yesterday for high end devices like this and the LG Optimus 4X HD. Naturally, the good people in Korea will be the first to check out this bad boy, but it’s mentioned to also be rolled out in other markets where LTE is available. Meaning, the listing currently includes the US, Canada, Japan, and some areas in Europe.

As much as we’d love to see this thing come stateside soon, no domestic carrier has come out to say if they have any plans of bringing it over to their lineup. Well, all we can do now is simply wait for the good word.
